Now's your chance to prove it. Compete against the top EA SPORTS NHL 18 gamers in the world in the NHL Gaming World Championship - a global tournament to determine, for the first time, who truly is the best at EA SPORTS NHL 18.
Starting Mar. 9, go to FACEIT to register for the tournament. Your first chance to show off your 'Chel skills is Mar. 24, with online qualifiers running every weekend through Apr. 14 on both Xbox One and PS4 (see below for full schedule). Sign in on any qualifier weekend to get assigned your regional opponent, and be sure to return to the site to record your results and find out your next opponent. If you're eliminated, don't worry, you can come back each weekend until Apr. 14 to try again.
At the end of each qualifier, two finalists from the US, Canada, and Europe will advance to the Regional Finals. At the end of the four online qualifiers, the eight European Regional Finalists will compete at Viasat studios in Stockholm, Sweden; the eight Canadian Regional Finalists will compete at Sportsnet studios in Toronto, Ontario; and the eight US Regional Finalists will compete at NBC Studios in Stamford, Connecticut. The winner and runner up from each region will win a trip to compete in the World Finals in Las Vegas, Nevada, where they will attend the NHL Awards, compete head-to-head and win their share of $100,000.
